DP World Santos started operating two more regular services with weekly stopovers in October. These are the long-haul Brazex Loop 2 and Nexco cabotage lines. Both are operated by companies held by the CMA CGM group (CMA CGM and Mercosul Line), which has been operating at the terminal since 2013 with three other routes.

Brazex Loop 2 makes optimized connections between North America, the Caribbean, Asia, and Europe. At DP World Santos, the beginning of this service will be marked by the arrival of the ship “Mandalay”, on Wednesday, October 21st. 982 unloading movements will be carried out.

The operations will take place as part of the route that calls the ports of Vila Do Conde (PA), Vitória (ES), Santos (SP), and Navegantes (SC), connecting to Caribbean ports (including the DP World unit in Caucedo), Asia, Europe, and North America. Another four vessels are part of the service, with an average length of 190 meters and an average capacity of 2,400 TEU.

In the case of the Nexco cabotage service (an acronym for Northeast Express Connection), from Mercosul Line, the southeastern and northeastern regions of Brazil are connected in just over 10 days through the ports of Santos, Salvador, Suape and Itaguaí. This line is operated by DP World Santos with the ship “Aristote”, which is 170 meters long and has a capacity for 1,691 TEU.

In addition to the new services, DP World Santos currently operates three long-haul lines connecting the Caribbean/Gulf of Mexico, Africa, and Asia, in addition to three coastal lines.
